Transparent Explorer

Hi,

Is it possible to make Explorerís background transparent without the use of a third-party program, such as BGE? For instance, can this be done by editing a visual style using Windows Style Builder?

The only way to get it transparent explorer window is with third-party apps like BGE, it cannot be done with Windows style builder.
